|From the plane, my view of Mont Blanc to the right, with Mt Salève ridge overshadowing Geneva|
Plenty of time to book a flight, swap over to a compact crankset (thanks Aaron F), and pack for the Wed night flight to Geneva.
My old track running friend Mary was forewarned and picked me up from Geneva airport amidst the World track & field champs on T.V.
|I had no idea why Mary got out of the car|
|of course, to press the elevator button for the car parking!|
Race registration went smoothly with no line-ups. If anything, Mary and I were taking lots of time in the LeMarq expo tent trying on all the fine cycling clothing.
|I wasn't sure what to think of the pre-race meal!|
